TAA welcomes new legislative reforms to unregulated short stay accommodation in Tasmania

    Tourism Accommodation Australia (TAA) issued (08-Aug-2019) support for Tasmania’s legislative reforms to unregulated short stay accommodation. TAA National CEO Michael Johnson stated the new mandatory registration system is “arguably the strongest reform we have seen in Australia to date”. Mr Johnson stated unregulated short term accommodation “negatively impacts housing affordability, community amenity and undermines the licensed accommodation sector” and will be “watching closely to see if platforms adhere to their legal requirements”.
